Hi, are you referring to the MSD of the protein?
I am not sure which of the MSDs are right, or why there is a difference
between the two versions. But, both of the MSDs are plausible. There is no
obvious wrong answer. Complex molecules have a long time relaxation and may
exhibit glassy behavior and thus an MSD like the blue line. Look at this
reference which shows that lipids exhibit sub-diffusive behavior till 30
ns. Protein dynamics are never straightforward.
There is a valid issue about the discrepancy between the two versions.
Others may be able to help you here. I suggest longer simulations.
